A Catholic education requires a commitment on the part of the diocese, parishes and families. Tuition is set at an amount that is equal to the cost of education. Tuition assistance is available based upon need. The financial resources of the family determine the tuition that each family pays.
Families requesting assistance in paying the total per pupil cost are required to complete a confidential financial aid form. Schools in the Diocese of Greensburg are registered with FACTS (Fast Automatic Cash Transfer System). This company’s main purpose is to collect tuition from families. However, the FACTS Grant and Aid division provides support in identifying the amount of tuition assistance families need based upon an objective set of norms and criteria. Complete privacy and confidentiality is assured throughout this process.
Families who participate in the SCRIP program can lower their tuition payments without adding any additional costs to the family budget. We strongly encourage all families to fully participate in this program.
